Thank you for you work on this!

I started with reviewing the series so that I would know what to
expect during testing. All 3 patches look good to me:

Reviewed-by: Hans de Goede <>

As is the series does not fix the Bluetooth HID misreporting on
the system with OpRegion dependencies in its BT ACPI node's _HID,
but ...

This is expected because that _HID has a _DEP on the GPO1 GPIO
controller, which in turn has a _DEP pointing to the
"Intel Baytrail Mailbox Device" ("INT33BD")

We (Linux) don't do anything with the INT33BD device, so it can
simply be added to the acpi_ignore_dep_ids list. With this done the
3 patches from this RFT fix the BT _HID issue. IOW everything works
as expected / as we want.

While at it I also booted the kernel with these patches on a
Lenovo Yoga X1 Carbon 8th gen. I'm not seeing any adverse side
effects there, so please add my tested-by to the entire series:

I will send out a patch adding "INT33BD" to the
acpi_ignore_dep_ids list (to be applied on top of this series)
right away.
